The following TTR gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the TTR gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: This gene encodes transthyretin, one of the three
prealbumins including alpha-1-antitrypsin, transthyretin and
orosomucoid. Transthyretin is a carrier protein; it transports
thyroid hormones in the plasma and cerebrospinal fluid, and also
transports retinol (vitamin A) in the plasma. The protein consists
of a tetramer of identical subunits. More than 80 different
mutations in this gene have been reported; most mutations are
related to amyloid deposition, affecting predominantly peripheral
nerve and/or the heart, and a small portion of the gene mutations
is non-amyloidogenic. The diseases caused by mutations include
amyloidotic polyneuropathy, euthyroid hyperthyroxinaemia,
amyloidotic vitreous opacities, cardiomyopathy, oculoleptomeningeal
amyloidosis, meningocerebrovascular amyloidosis, carpal tunnel
syndrome, etc. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009].
